The Bad

  • Delayed Delivery
  • Damaged Belongings

Delayed Delivery

As is common among a number of moving services, delivery timelines are tricky as multiple jobs are being balanced and goods are being moved from trucks to storage and then back onto a truck. It is not uncommon for delivery to be later than initially promised. Some customer reviews have mentioned this being an issue, so be aware before signing any contract that delayed delivery is a possibility.

Damaged Belongings

When you put your personal belongings and furniture in the hands of a moving service, you expect them to be treated with respect and care. There have been instances in which furniture has been damaged to the point that it is no longer usable. Boxes have also been smashed damaging personal belongings and household goods during transportation. This is not an overly common experience, but it does happen every so often causing negative customer reviews.

I wish I could go back in time and erase all the times I used movers other than Moving Nation, some who were scam artists and others who were just hopelessly clueless part-timers. By contrast, here you get consummate professionals who know the ins and outs of moving houses. Let me just be clear that Moving Nation does not come cheap like the part-timers I mentioned. If you want to compromise professionalism for economy, these guys are not for you. But in return you get hard workers, dedicated support and actual competence. Your choice.

Moving Nation understands how stressful moving time is for most people and their assistance during our move made a chaotic and confusing time much more bearable. For that, they have my strongest recommendation.My story: A good promotion uprooted me from Kansas where I have lived for 17 years and plonked me down in California, which I haven’t even visited before. But to complicate matters, I was required to turn up within 2 weeks. Fortunately, Moving Nation empathized with my situation and gave me a massive discount on a piggyback move within the window I had to travel.Once they came into the picture, everything just fell into place. I arrived ahead of time to take over the manager’s position and they delivered our things on a weekend so my husband didn’t have to handle it alone. I don’t think I could ever recommend any other moving company!

This company has completely reversed what I thought of all movers until now. The way they took the care to pack and load my things and then unload an unpack them later in Oklahoma shows that there are definitely good movers around, and this is one of them.

Moving Naion have really accomplished something by pulling off my 4-bedroom house move all the way from NY to SC without a hitch. This is not the first time I have used professional movers but I believe it is the first time that I have been so pleased with the end result. The movers really knew what they were doing and I am happy that I got what I paid for. I also want to mention that the sales team is just as good at their own job at making it all come together. I shall use them again.

Writing this review as a thank you for Moving Nation doing a supremely excellent job with our move to Dallas. It was a massive project a 6-bedroom house on three levels so getting the details right, making sure every box ended up where it was supposed to go, all the while ensuring that nothing got broken was no mean feat. And all that after the long drive from my old place! It comes down to a good, positive attitude. I think the management has done an amazing job of instilling the right values in their people. I recommend this company.

I am going to stick with Moving Nation based on my personal experiences not reviews. This was my second time using them but the first time reviewing them. After the first time, I used another company expecting the same type of service and they really disappointed me. Now, I am making up for that missed review and telling you that these guys are something special. There are many companies that charge the same or higher but they cannot compare to the quality that Moving Nation delivers. I will use them again and write a review every time.

My experience with Moving Nation is pretty much in line with all the other positive reviewers here. This is a company that treats its clients right and does a good job of delivering great service but still keeping costs reasonable. You will pay a bit more than you would for some other movers but the quality difference is really stark. You can tell pretty much from the first look their trucks are new, uniforms are clean, the way they speak is professional. Just a very good company from the get go. Use them.

I really like that Moving Nation is one of the most experienced moving businesses that deliver to Texas. It gives you the confidence to be able to give all the things that you own into their custody without stressing out over whether everything will arrive safe and sound at the destination. While that experience is I think the biggest reason that I chose them, a lot of their appeal also comes down to reasonable costs and a good admin team. Putting all these factors together, I think they are way ahead of the competition.

I would definitely recommend Moving Nation to you for your next move based on what a phenomenal job they did for me in my recent move from Portland, WA to Baltimore, MD Right off the bat, let me tell you that they are not the cheapest movers. There are many companies that will charge you less but they will compromise on quality. Here, you will always get premium service by their movers and the customer service support team, as well as clean vehicles and equipment. In my books, it is a difference worth paying for. 5 stars from me.

For those who are lucky enough to be able to consider quality over just cost, you cannot go wrong with this company. I used to go for the cheapest option before but a couple of terrible experiences later, I have definitely become a stickler for quality when it comes to entrusting all the contents of my house to strangers. This is the second time I have used them and can assure you that their performance is consistently strong. It may seem like you are getting a massively better deal with other movers but donít say I didn’t warn you.

If you are looking for consistently good movers who take their job seriously, Moving Nation is the first and last option you need to consider. I have used them for more than a dozen moves going back years and they have proven themselves time and again. If you have no idea about moving and are flying blind, you can do all your hours of research and come to the same conclusion that I can just give you right now ñ this is the best moving company. Save yourself a lot of time and effort and just hire them

After trying to save money but getting ripped off by rogue movers the last time round, I opted for the full service professionals at Moving Nation this time. Sure, they are more expensive but it isnít some sort of a scam the additional cost goes into training their staff not just in moving essentials but also in teaching them customer service. No rude, disinterested personnel here, just a great bunch of people working together to make your move fast, simple and painless.

My relocation from Portland, OR to Orlando, FL could not have gone better! Moving Nation were on time for the loading and delivered everything ahead of schedule because I asked them to try and hurry things up. Their speed aside, they also do a good job of securing your things so that there is minimal vibration or chance of damage during transit. It is these small touches that tell you that these people are in it not just for the money but to do a good job. I will most certainly hire them again if I am moving in the future.

I was forced to look for movers at the last minute because of a scheduling conflict with my new employers in South Carolina, where we were moving. It was an added and unexpected expense but considering how well and how smoothly everything turned out, I am quite glad that we chose Moving Nation. In fact, now that I have seen how much more convenient it is to have professionals handle the job, I am sorely tempted to use movers in the future. And I bet you that it will this same, very professional and reliable company once again.

I have switched movers several times because not one of them managed to handle everything to my satisfaction, until now. Moving Nation is the first company to tick all the boxes and really go out of their way to ensure that I was happy. They also did wonderfully at being punctual, both for the pickup and the drop off. If you can spare some extra cash, this is where you can spend it. Some people might forego them because their rates are slightly higher than the average moving company but, all things considered, they are the best option out there.

The last time I used a moving company, I had such a terrible experience that I almost swore that I would never use movers again. A recent injury forced me to break my rule but now I am glad I did because Moving Nation is the polar opposite of what I thought all moving companies were like. Each person on their team is professional, polite, well-informed and qualified for the job they do. My 2-bedroom house was moved and I did not even have to lift a finger… which is a good thing since I am recovering from a broken hand.

A little weather delay caused a bit of a hiccup on the day of my move but it wasn’t anything major and I am actually pretty pleased with how the whole thing went, all things considered. I hired Moving Nation because they came highly recommended and after this experience, I can totally understand why. The movers did their best to comply with the estimated time they had given me but had to stop when the rain got really bad. Still, they finished loading up the 3 bedrooms of stuff and got them to destination safely so I am happy.

We had a very nice experience using Moving Nation to move our daughter into her new 2-bedroom apartment in New Jersey. The quote we were given was one of the most competitive considering the short time they said they would take. We were a bit skeptical at first but decided to try it anyway since the quote was among the lowest of all the companies we asked. Fortunately, they kept their word and delivered as promised on both the time and the cost. We don’t plan on moving ourselves but have recommended Moving Nation to our family and friends.

Moving Nation is a company that I now really believe in. I had used them before and not really paid attention to the details but this time I was a lot more involved and the sales manager took the time to explain to me how the rates change on different days, how they charge by volume and other nitty gritty. In the end, using his advice, I think I saved a few hundred dollars, which is amazing that a company would do for a customer. I am sold!

I hired Moving Nation specifically to move just a very valuable and precious collection of keepsakes, some that are over a century old. They came in, did an up-close assessment and packed it all very carefully when I agreed. Very well handled and very professional service.

For my past two moves, I had considered Moving Nation but decided on other companies because they were slightly cheaper. However, those 2 moves turned out to be bad experiences and this one turned out perfect, proving ‘pay peanuts, get monkeys’. These guys are professionals and worth the cost.

If you want your move to go off without a lot of confusion and rushing and frustration, Moving Nation should be the first choice. They know how to handle any job, big or small. I have used them for a 1-bedroom move and now a whole 5-bedroom house. Perfect, both times.

The movers arrived on time and didn’t take breaks half the time like some other companies and they knew how to handle bulky things so they wouldn’t damage them. This is what all moving companies should all do. My first time using their services but I’ll be back!
